1 HRS 126/HIST 126 (GE Area C4) FALL 2010 DR. NYSTROM 2 SECTIONS IN ARC 1011 (M 6-8:50) 2 ONLINE SECTIONS CONTACT INFORMATION Office hours: MW and 2:45-3:15 in Mendocino 2024 Office phone: (do not use SacCT mail) COURSE TITLE History of Christianity to the Reformation COURSE DESCRIPTION Christianity from Jesus to Martin Luther. Emphasis on the evolution of Christian thought and institutions and the relationship of the Church to popular culture and secular powers. LEARNING OBJECTIVES Students who complete HRS/HIST 126 will: understand the general outlines of the history of Christianity from its beginnings to the Reformation; be able to describe the influence of ancient and medieval culture on the development of Christian ideas and institutions; and be able to identify the contributions of women, heretics, and thinkers representing both Judaism and Islam to the development of Christianity. TEXTS B. and D. Nystrom, The History of Christianity: An Introduction W. Placher, A History of Christian Theology Supplementary Readings (posted on SacCT) The Nystrom book is a general introduction to the history of Christianity. It deals with intellectual, doctrinal, political, social, and institutional developments and the relationship of Christianity to the historical and cultural settings in which it grew. The Placher book focuses more narrowly on the history of Christian thought, one of the important themes in this course. The Supplementary Readings highlight specific features of the history of Christianity. Each of the Supplementary Readings is introduced by a headnote (in bold type) written by me.

2 The outlines of the Nystrom and Placher books are not in perfect agreement. There may be times when you find yourself reading in Placher about a topic that has not yet come up, or has already come up, in lecture and/or in the Nystrom book. If this happens, relax and know that all is well. There are always different ways in which to approach a subject, and you will not suffer as as a result. Are the readings are important? Yes. The readings response quizzes are based entirely on the Supplementary Readings, many multiple-choice questions on the midterm and final will be based on the readings, and it will be difficult to earn a score in the A-B range on the essay portions of the midterm and final exams without making effective use of the readings. WEEKLY SCHEDULE OF TOPICS Week 1: Introduction; Jewish, Greek, and Roman Backgrounds to Christianity Week 2: Labor Day Weeks 3-4: Jesus and the New Testament Weeks 5-6: Persecution, Martyrs and Martyrdom, Early Christian Writers, Monasticism Weeks 7-8: Theological Issues, Councils and Creeds Week 9: Midterm Weeks 10-11: The Church in the Early Middle Ages: The Western and Byzantine Worlds Weeks 12-13: The Church in the High Middle Ages, Reform movements, the Papal Monarchy Weeks 14-15: The Church in the Late Middle Ages: Mystics, the Renaissance, the Orthodox Church and the Fall of Byzantium, and a peek at the Reformation EXAMS AND GRADES Your course grade will be based on your performance on four Readings Response Quizzes, the Midterm Exam, and the Final Exam. The Readings Response Quizzes (10 points each) are timed quizzes in which you will have 5 minutes to answer 5 two-point multiple-choice questions based exclusively on the Supplemental Readings. Readings response quizzes will be taken online via SacCT and you will have a period of four days during which to take them (see below for days and times) in which to do each. I will drop your lowest Readings Response Quiz score, so you can miss one without penalty. The midterm and final exams will consist of two parts: a multiple choice section (40 one-point questions) and an essay section (60 points). You must come to campus to take the midterm and final exams. In addition to the regularlyscheduled exam sessions scheduled for ARC 1011, you may take the midterm and final exams at the alternative times described below in the "Schedule of Readings and Exams."

3 Your course grade will be based on the percentage you earn of the 230 possible points in the course: A % C % A % D % B % D 63-67% B 83-87% D % B % F 59% and below C % C 73-77% Please do not tell me at any point during the semester what grade you want or need.

Prior to the Midterm What steps did the Christian movement take to define orthodoxy (correct belief) in the ancient period? Why was it necessary to define what orthodox Christianity was and wasn t? Christians and Christianity often met with hostility from the Roman state and from pagan culture in general. Why was this the case? What forms did such hostility take? How did Christians respond to it? You should be able to look at a printed text of the Nicene Creed and the Definition of Chalcedon and explain how each addressed significant theological issues.
